The bottom line is European Assault is living proof that the Medal of Honor series still commands considerable respect in a genre of military games that is slowly but surely becoming heavily populated. Boasting some of the best graphics the series has seen as well a superior soundtrack and an enhanced game play engine make this one a must have for all those hardcore militant gamers out there. Whoever said that the MoH series was dead must have forgotten that while patrons and heroes may come and go tomorrow it is honor that will last forever and ever. 4 + GiN gems is my final verdict.

Medal of Honor: European Assault is the best next-generation Medal of Honor game. It's the best World War II game that I've ever played, period. Better than Call of Duty, better than Return to Castle Wolfenstein, better than Frontline. The developers at Electronic Arts Los Angeles pulled off a game that is infinitely more playable than its predecessors and competitors, all while giving hardcore gamers a serious challenge on the harder difficulty settings. EA dropped an A-Bomb on their competitors with this one. Enlist in the European Assault today, soldier.

Na also, es geht doch! Nach dem eher enttäuschenden Rising Sun zeigt EA mit European Assault jetzt deutlich, welches Potenzial immer noch in der Serie steckt: Die intelligenten Verbesserungen, das freie Spielprinzip, der dezente Arcade-Einschlag mit Nemesis-Gegnern und Adrenalin-Modus, die tolle Präsentation – all das sorgt für ein aufregendes Spielerlebnis, welches für jeden Shooter-Typ geeignet ist. Entdecker versuchen, möglichst jede Sekundärmission ausfindig zu machen, Rambos rennen Feuer spuckend durch die Levels. Das anachronistische »Lauf geradeaus, erledige Gegner, lauf weiter geradeaus, erledige Gegner, komme im Ziel an«-Prinzip wird hier endlich ad acta gelegt: European Assault weht wie ein frischer Wind durch das zunehmend müffelnde WW2- Genre.

Surpassing the last Medal of Honor game, European Assault is a much welcomed addition and a step up for a series that is starting to show its true colors. With its wide open spaces fit for exploration and wonderfully action-packed mission scenarios, this is a first-rate game for fans of first-person shooters set during WWII.

Game Watcher (Jul 20, 2005)
To sum it all up, it's a new MOH game that brings a few new fresh things to the series but the game doesn't hold up well. It's too short and with no online multiplayer, the replay value is not hitting at much. Still, anybody ready for a new and fresh installment to the series will surely enjoy this game while it does last. Fans of the series and newcomers as well will enjoy this game, just beware of broken controllers. Buy or rent? It's a rent, go rent it and have a good weekend beating it.

"European Assault" strahlt zwar nicht so hell am Shooter-Himmel, wie einst "Frontline", rehabilitiert die Serie aber dennoch für das misslungene "Rising Sun". Das deutlich aufgebohrte Gameplay sorgt für viele Überraschungsmomente, und motiviert den Spieler immer wieder auch in frühere Levels zurückzukehren. Trotzdem bleibt die Frage ungeklärt, warum Electronic Arts die Optik des Shooters derart in den Sand gesetzt hat! Mit einer zeitgemäßen Umsetzung wäre vielleicht sogar ein Hit drin gewesen. So sei "Medal of Honor: European Assault" zumindest beinharten Fans ans Herz gelegt, die keine Angst vor hässlichen Soldaten und Frustmomenten haben!

If you're sick of war games on the market, European Assault more than likely won't change your mind and should probably be passed over. However, first-person shooter fans and those who can't get enough Medal of Honor will definitely want to pick it up, as it has enough bold designs and graceful gameplay to keep you fighting the good fight. The lack of online multiplayer is an issue, but not enough to keep you away from the brooding experience it provides. I can't wait to see what's next for this series. Hopefully, I won't have to wait long.

It's tough to say what the future will hold for the Medal of Honor franchise. The WWII first-person shooter genre is becoming more crowded with each passing month, and there's a good chance that we'll be seeing more similarly themed games in the future. With this title, however, EA has shown that they aren't going to give up without a fight, and they've succeeded in breathing new life into the series by opening up the levels and adding some interesting gameplay mechanics. If what we've seen in European Assault is any indication, the reports of the franchise's death are greatly exaggerated.

XBox Evolved (Jul 06, 2005)
Medal of Honor: European Assault is a perfect example of why World War II games are so wildly popular... almost. The game pretty much has everything going for it in the fact that just about every aspect of the game made to represent battles in World War II are very successful in doing so. The campaign is a little too short but is usually difficult enough to provide a lot of playtime as you try to go through each level with a new strategy. The one serious problem with this game definitely has to be the fact that there is no Xbox Live support. For a game that has good enough gameplay to definitely warrant an online multiplayer to be added in, this game lacks in fun after you've beaten the campaign.

While Medal of Honor remains one of the best places to go to get that intense feeling of being in the middle of a great war epic, the gameplay itself isn't quite so satisfying. To become an action hero, this might still be the right choice. To truly come to terms with the plight of a soldier losing friends and risking death in wartime, there are other places you should look first.

The game's wide-open levels actually encourage players to explore, giving the series a fresh feel compared to past games. Unfortunately, a very brief campaign and no online multiplayer means the fun doesn't last long.

I get the feeling that EA really didn't know where to take this series next, and just fired blindly. To say the very least, European Assault doesn't come close to hitting the target.

Having said all of that, the single-player campaign - as small as it is - is still worth checking out on its own. In an era when most publishers are content to churn out games you can complete on autopilot, it's quite refreshing to be presented with an FPS that hands your arse back to you on a plate. Equally, though, it's also devilishly frustrating to be forced back to square one regardless of the progress you've made and it's baffling that EA would opt for this approach. Still, even taking that into account, the excellent control system and degree of tension European Assault inspires marks it out as a game worth checking out if you're into traditional WWII shooters - although its lack of originality or longevity makes it more of a recommended rental than a full price purchase.

X-Power (Jun 26, 2005)
Medal Of Honor: European Assault heeft mij aangenaam verrast. Het komt wat traag op gang maar vanaf de Russische missies, draait het op volle toeren. Het spel is echter niet zo lang. Op een goede 6 à 8 uur heb je deze game uitgespeeld, maar je zal er wel van genoten hebben! Er bestaat ook nog altijd de mogelijkheid om de missies op een andere moeilijkheidsgraad uit te spelen. Bijvoorbeeld zonder revives of medkits! Voor de WWII fans is deze game een must have. Het is duidelijk dat EA zich heeft herpakt en hopelijk gaat de serie in een stijgende lijn verder.

Medal of Honor European Assault is halfway to a fine return to form for the Los Angeles team. They've given MOH fans what they want in terms of action and all they need now is a little bit more variety in the game and the series will return to the prestigious status it deserves. For now European Assault is only for the truly hardcore MOH fan or someone who just hasn't got enough of WWII games already.

European Assault is a sporadically excellent defensive shooter that's let down by curious design philosophies and a musical score so rousing it could raise John Wayne's corpse.

The Next Level (Jul 25, 2005)
Regardless of its minor flawsEuropean Assault delivers the action and intense atmosphere you've come to expect from the Medal of Honor games. The presentation and gameplay are solid and the missions are varied enough to warrant more than a single playthrough. If you were turned off to the franchise after Rising Sun or are just tired of WWII shooters in general, there's plenty here to make you a believer once again.

Demeuré inchangé durant des années pendant que la concurrence évoluait, MoH essaie seulement de rattraper le tir en intégrant ce qu'on trouve déjà ailleurs depuis des lustres. Jeu en équipe, niveaux plus ouverts ou même le discutable bullet time. L'ennui, c'est qu'il s'y prend mal sur certains points et surtout qu'il a quelques années de retard. Cependant, on peut tout de même reconnaître que l'effort sur la linéarité ressentie de manière moins contraignante est appréciable Malheureusement, la durée de vie rikiki rend la pilule encore plus indigeste avec une campagne solo qui ne vous tiendra que 6 à 8 heures selon votre niveau et un mode online curieusement évincé. Faucons de Guerre n'est qu'une étape dans ce qui pourrait être une évolution positive de la série, mais on attendra la prochaine.

Medal of Honor : European Assault n'est donc pas franchement un mauvais jeu, il apporte bien quelques nouveautés à une série qui en avait grandement besoin. Dommage que toutes ces "innovations" se trouvent déjà depuis longtemps chez la concurrence. Dommage également que le jeu se boucle en une grosse après-midi.

Gamekult (Jun 23, 2005)
EA paraissait tenir le bon bout, avec de bonnes idées et de nouvelles orientations qui auraient pu largement réussir à sa série si mal embarquée depuis Soleil Levant. Mais les développeurs n'ont tout simplement pas réussi à faire coïncider cette nouvelle aspiration réaliste avec l'esprit originel de la série beaucoup plus simple et agressif. Par ailleurs, avant de songer à gonfler en nouveautés leur dernier-né, il aurait été malin de corriger d'abord les défauts que traîne la série depuis quelques épisodes. Avec une I.A. toujours aussi loufoque et des graphismes pas forcément au top, il n'est pas évident de se laisser aller à l'intensité des batailles. Restent des niveaux vraiment vastes et bien construits où s'installe une ambiance tendue et prenante qui arrive de temps à autres à nous faire oublier la ribambelle de petits défauts qui polluent un peu trop ce Medal of Honor. Allez, encore un petit effort.

Face à de nombreux concurrents Medal of Honor : Les faucons de Guerre fait bien pâle figure… Avec une réalisation des plus calamiteuses qui l’assomme de trop nombreux défauts, le soft devient un fardeau pour le Gamer qui ne peut qu’être spectateur de ce si triste spectacle. Reste que si l’on est fan de FPS, et uniquement dans ce cas là, on pourra tout de même prendre un minimum de plaisir à tuer les ennemis des Alliés à coup de fusil à pompe par exemple. Pas très réaliste, tout comme le reste du soft, mais défoulant.
